Apologies for the delay, sometimes it can take a while for your question to be answered, depending on the availabilty of the experts and the complexity of the question.
Can I help with this?
To replace the battery, pull the metal key out of the fob, use a flat blade screwdriver to open the key fob.
Please see this VIDEO. It's easier for you to understand rather than me explaining through messages.
The key is not being detected, that is why the alarm sounds.
The only option you have is to remove the fuse for the alarm siren. Give me a moment, I will check which fuse it is.
Fuse number 19 (glove box compartment) is for the alarm & siren but you must note that is shared for the comfort access module so, it will disable this too.
Hope this helps.
Welcome. I believe comfort access is keyless entry where you can simply open the locked car door with the key in your pocket.
That'll be fine then.
All the best and thank you for using JA.
